My first overseas trip was to Italy, backpacking and hosteling for a month between mid-September and mid-October in 2012. I celebrated my 50th birthday with a climb up to peer into the crater of Mount Vesuvius. These photos were all from disposable cameras as I didn't have a really good one at the...
